Make 2016 the Year of Learning Impact: Learn From the Leaders
Learning teams have high aspirations for their organization — 94 percent seek improvements in productivity, engagement and business agility, yet less than one-third achieve the results they desire.
How can we do better?
To answer this question, Laura Overton, founder of Towards Maturity, has been working with learning teams from companies of all sizes for over a decade. Published in November, Towards Maturity’s 2015-16 industry benchmark report — “Embracing Change” — analyzes 1.5 million data points from more than 600 organizations from around the world to identify what’s working and what isn’t.

Bersin By Deloitte: Managing Performance in the 21st Century
There is a revolution [or a tsunami] in performance management: a major shift in the way today's organizations are viewing their performance management activities. From a once-a-year event, often seen as purposeless, leading-edge companies are now viewing performance management as an ongoing series of activities, with a greater emphasis on coaching and supporting employees. Our research confirms that high-impact performance management is about much more than an end of year assessment and evaluation – it is about supporting performance on an ongoing basis.
This change in performance management practices affects the technology solutions that underpin those activities. Rather than “one and done” forms and their submittal processes, today's technologies are supporting ongoing conversations and continuous coaching, anytime feedback from peers and management, and the standard articulation of goals and objectives.
This web seminar will discuss features in technology solutions that support the performance management revolution and provide examples of companies that have abandoned the once-a-year model within the context of the rapidly evolving – some would say even revolutionizing – performance management practices of today.
Workforce Planning for New Realities
Few companies today have not been touched significantly by the economic events of 2008 and 2009. Unemployment has skyrocketed and every company has made personnel adjustments. Workforce trauma and triage have changed employment tactics from a best employee for the job approach to best employee for the big picture or for the immediate bottom line. Even healthy businesses have gone from fully-staffed production machines to a lean workforce comprised of just the staff needed to keep the doors open through an economic recovery.
Most talent management solutions aren't all that different from each other. But this one is: it’s built around a machine-learning brain—technology that quickly digests incoming workforce data, evaluates it, and learns from it. Correlating diverse inputs to deliver ideas and options you didn't know you had.
